Simple Steps Community Connection (aka Simple Steps) was founded in May 2017 in the Bay Area to support immigrant communities. We aim to create a community that supports skilled female immigrants and employers. We help immigrant women continue on their professional goals while contributing to the community. At the same time, we collaborate with local employers who want to hire great talents from diverse backgrounds.


Simple Steps aims to empower immigrant women to pursue their career aspirations after a hiatus by achieving the following goals:

  • Promoting self-esteem of immigrant women on a break
  • Providing skill-building training, coaching and resources
  • Connecting with job opportunities


Having grown up in Korea, Doyeon moved to the U.S. at the age of 30. She personally experienced and witnessed the difficulties encountered by immigrant women in returning to the workforce due to cultural and language barriers and lack of professional network. Doyeon met a lot of professionally accomplished and talented immigrant women who wanted to reenter the work but didn’t know how to start. Simple Steps helps immigrant women to pursue their career aspirations and move toward achieving their goals.
